While I was archiving some material into our Pass Perfect Archive Database, I found the Dedication and Open House program for J.M. Hanks High School on 2001 Lee Trevino Dr. The high school was established in 1978 and it started off as a junior high school. The first graduating class was in 1982. The actual building was completed and opened in 1980. The first principal was Arturo Peralta. I am a graduate of the school and my dad was one of the first faculty members, he taught history at Hanks and Eastwood High Schools for 38 years. The school was named after the first superintendent of Ysleta Independent School District, J.M. Hanks. The library was renamed after Charles Duncan, a beloved history teacher, who made learning about history fun for his students.
